I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
There is death in self in every great work for God.
Christ demonstratively and lavishly exhibited
His ultimate love for us by His co-crucifixion.
He sacrificially and lovingly died for us.
We died with Him.
And because of His death
We are a glorious new creation within
Being changed from glory to glory,
Yet free to choose
Moment by moment
Old nature ,
Every moment I must make an eternal decision
Between love of self,
Or love of Jesus Christ.
May our hearts not settle for the exaltation of a wayward and wavering world
But understand we already have the ultimate gift of acceptance, security, & worthiness
Which is Salvation,
Jesus Christ within.
The more Christ fills our
The greater our urgency will be to unconditionally love each other,
To encourage each other to come first
To the Cross,
To His most Holy Word.
For truly this is love and tender care
When I want only God’s unmatchable righteousness
For every soul that is on the mountaintop of exhilaration
Or in valley of despair.
And the Fruit of the spirit is love!!
